I find this strange.

With context to my example, if xsl:variable name="temp_result" without an
explicit type declaration on the variable, presents the result of this
variable as string (and string-length(translate(... working fine on such a
variable), why declaring like xsl:variable name="temp_result"
as="xs:string" work similarly (isn't using as="xs:string" a stronger signal
to the XSLT processor, to maintain the variable's value as string, and
presenting this string to a function expecting xs:string value fine)?

I'm using Saxon EE 10.2 as an XSLT 3.0 processor.
